Sky News Australia host Piers Morgan has spoken to an ex-Hamas insider who became a spy for Israel in the late 1990s. Mosab Hassan Yousef is the eldest son of Hamas co-founder Sheikh Hassan Yousef.
Mosab Hassan Yousef – who is the eldest son of Hamas co-founder Sheikh Hassan Yousef – says Hamas “wants to destroy” Israel. “It is not a secret that Hamas wants to destroy the state of Israel. They cannot accept Israel or accept Israel’s right to exist,”
“Since its establishment, Hamas has one goal in mind, which is annihilating the state of Israel.” Mosab Hassan Yousef was a spy for Israel from 1997 until 2007 when he left the West Bank for the US. His father was arrested on October 19 as part of Israel’s crackdown on Hamas following the October 7 attacks.
“Since I was a child, I asked my father many questions about Hamas delusions, about their brutality, about their abuse of power, and he always justified their position,” Mosab Hassan Yousef said. “Then I was imprisoned with Hamas. I spent about 27 months in Israeli prisons where Hamas was torturing their own members … within Israel prisons. They killed and tortured hundreds of prisoners. “This is when I started asking myself the question: what if Hamas becomes the ruler at some point, what will they do to our people?” Mr Yousef said that when Hamas became the ruler of Gaza, their brutality didn’t surprise him. “This is my message: an ex-Hamas member, as a son of one of Hamas’ founders, enough of this. If we don’t stop them now, the next war is going to be deadlier and only God knows what will happen next if Hamas is not finished as soon as possible,” Mr Yousef said. “They opened the gates of hell on the Palestinian people. “They are willing to actually sacrifice many Palestinian children, the entire Palestinian people and use them as fuel to … achieve their ideological agendas, their religious agendas.”
